**KEY TOPICS**

** According to the minimum energy dissipation theorem, the Stokes solution dissipates less energy than any other solenoidal vector field with the same boundary velocities.** [1] The Lennard-Jones potential has a stable equilibrium point where the potential energy is minimum and the force on either side of the equilibrium point points toward equilibrium point. [2] Specification of stress and strain; infinitesimal and finite deformation; conservation equations; typical constitutive equations; minimum potential energy principle. [3] Of these terms, the first must be absent, as the potential energy must be a true minimum when the body is unstrained; and, as the strains are all small, the second term alone will be of importance. [4]

The function here spoken of, with its sign changed, is the potential energy of the strained elastic body per unit of volume, expressed in terms of the components of strain; and the differential coefficients of the function, with respect to the components of strain, are the components of stress. [4] The force at a position is equal to the negative of the slope of the graph at that position. (a) A potential energy function with a stable equilibrium point. (b) A potential energy function with an unstable equilibrium point. [2] Work is done on the block by applying an external force, pulling it out to a position of x + A. The system now has potential energy stored in the spring. [2] Consider the example of a block attached to a spring on a frictionless table, oscillating in SHM. The force of the spring is a conservative force (which you studied in the chapter on potential energy and conservation of energy), and we can define a potential energy for it. [2] In the SHM of the mass and spring system, there are no dissipative forces, so the total energy is the sum of the potential energy and kinetic energy. [2] The total energy of a system becomes the amount of kinetic energy plus the amount of potential energy plus whatever amount of heat is lost. [5] The total energy remains constant, but the energy oscillates between kinetic energy and potential energy. [2] The total energy is the sum of the kinetic energy plus the potential energy and it is constant. [2] If you add up the kinetic energy and the potential energy of a closed system, that gives you the total energy of that system at that moment. [5] If the only result is deformation, and no work goes into thermal, sound, or kinetic energy, then all the work is initially stored in the deformed object as some form of potential energy. [2] A closer look at the energy of the system shows that the kinetic energy oscillates like a sine-squared function, while the potential energy oscillates like a cosine-squared function. [2] If you are interested in this interaction, find the force between the molecules by taking the derivative of the potential energy function. [2] Given in Fig. 6.11 are examples of some potential energy functions in one dimension. [6] As the object starts to move, the elastic potential energy is converted into kinetic energy, becoming entirely kinetic energy at the equilibrium position. [2] If you have a certain amount of potential energy and you release it, you will have the same amount of kinetic energy afterwards if there is no heat lost. [5] The potential energy decreases and the magnitude of the velocity and the kinetic energy increase. [2] When the kinetic energy is maximum, the potential energy is zero. [2] At this point, the spring is neither extended nor compressed, so the potential energy stored in the spring is zero. [2] For the simple example of an object on a frictionless surface attached to a spring, the motion starts with all of the energy stored in the spring as elastic potential energy. [2] If you stretch a rubber band and then let go, the amount of potential energy you “stored,” so to speak, in the band, will convert into motion. [5] The direct application of the Kirchhoff -Gehring method led to a formula for the potential energy of the same form as Aron’s and to equations of motion and boundary conditions which were difficult to reconcile with Lord Rayleigh’s theory. [4] He arrived at an expression for the potential energy of the strained shell which is of the same form as that obtained by Kirchhoff for plates, but the quantities that define the curvature of the middle-surface were replaced by the differences of their values in the strained and unstrained states. [4] Since a bond is a two-body creature, we assert that it suffices to define the bond on the basis of Löwdin’s postulate of a molecule which we invoke to investigate such formation of the He dimer in a given C 60 void in terms of the He He potential energy well. [7] He observed that the modes of vibration possible to a shell do not fall into classes characterized respectively by normal and tangential displacements, and he adopted equations of motion that could be deduced from Aron’s formula for the potential energy by retaining the terms that depend on the stretching of the middle-surface only. [4] When it comes to Schringer’s equation, the potential energy might be due to something like a gravitational field or an electric field. [5] Unfortunately, you can’t give just one equation for potential energy. [5] In a quantum system, you add up the kinetic energies of all the particles in a system, add the potential energy in that system, and you have what is called the Hamiltonian. [5] The energy is then converted back into elastic potential energy by the spring as it is stretched or compressed. [2] The potential energy of a configuration was calculated as the pairwise-additive sum of distance-dependent Ca 2+ /CO 3 2?, Ca 2+ /Ca 2+, and CO 3 2? /CO 3 2? PMFs that are truncated at 20 [8] It is beyond the scope of this chapter to discuss in depth the interactions of the two atoms, but the oscillations of the atoms can be examined by considering one example of a model of the potential energy of the system. [2]

The two terms on the right-hand side represent, respectively, the change in potential energy, ?g(h2?h1), and the change in kinetic energy, 12?(v22?v21), of the unit volume during its flow from point 1 to point 2. [9] One of the characteristics of strings is that they want to contract to minimize their potential energy, but the first law of energy prevents them from disappearing, so they vibrate. (Notice the change of the concept Planck length to the term string which are equivalent in this context) When each of the endpoints of a string in that quantum of space is pulled apart from each other and gains potential energy with a restoring force, this restoring force creates tension. [10] Our industrial science has, to date, relied upon the geometry of explosions to power our energy needs. This, in physics terms, means that we use the conversion of a potential energy to an energy of motion to power our machinery. [10] A graph of the ball’s gravitational potential energy vs. height, Ug(h), for an arbitrary initial velocity is given in Part A. The zero point of gravitational potential energy is located at the height at which the ball leaves the thrower’s hand. [9] A greater amount of work is needed to balance the increase in potential energy from the elevation change. [9] When rolling a ball down a ramp, you may not have taken in account the effects of rolling friction or the fact that some gravitational potential energy is converted into rotational kinetic energy. [11] Draw a new gravitational potential energy vs. height graph to represent the gravitational potential energy if the ball had a mass of 2.00 kg. [9] In an elevated flow tube, the difference in pressure must also balance the increase in potential energy of the fluid; therefore a higher pressure is needed for the flow to occur. [9]

**POSSIBLY USEFUL**

** On occasions when the system happens to be in states that are sufficiently close to thermodynamic equilibrium, non-equilibrium state variables are such that they can be measured locally with sufficient accuracy by the same techniques as are used to measure thermodynamic state variables, or by corresponding time and space derivatives, including fluxes of matter and energy.** [12] Almost all systems found in nature are not in thermodynamic equilibrium; for they are changing or can be triggered to change over time, and are continuously and discontinuously subject to flux of matter and energy to and from other systems and to chemical reactions. [12]

Some concepts of particular importance for non-equilibrium thermodynamics include time rate of dissipation of energy (Rayleigh 1873, Onsager 1931, also ), time rate of entropy production (Onsager 1931), thermodynamic fields, dissipative structure, and non-linear dynamical structure. [12]

The space of state variables is enlarged by including the fluxes of mass, momentum and energy and eventually higher order fluxes. [12] The stationary states of such systems exists due to exchange both particles and energy with the environment. [12] If you take a large enough negative reference, you will only have positive bound energy states. [13]

These conditions are unfulfilled, for example, in very rarefied gases, in which molecular collisions are infrequent; and in the boundary layers of a star, where radiation is passing energy to space; and for interacting fermions at very low temperature, where dissipative processes become ineffective. [12] The fluctuations are due to the system’s internal sub-processes and to exchange of matter or energy with the system’s surroundings that create the constraints that define the process. [12]

The assumptions have the effect of making each very small volume element of the system effectively homogeneous, or well-mixed, or without an effective spatial structure, and without kinetic energy of bulk flow or of diffusive flux. [12]

The Papkovich-Neuber solution represents the velocity and pressure fields of an incompressible Newtonian Stokes flow in terms of two harmonic potentials. [1] It is pointed out by W.T. Grandy Jr that entropy, though it may be defined for a non-equilibrium system, is when strictly considered, only a macroscopic quantity that refers to the whole system, and is not a dynamical variable and in general does not act as a local potential that describes local physical forces. [12]

It may be shown that the Legendre transformation changes the maximum condition of the entropy (valid at equilibrium) in a minimum condition of the extended Massieu function for stationary states, no matter whether at equilibrium or not. [12] “Minimum entropy production in the steady state and radiative transfer”. [12]

The Lorentz reciprocal theorem states a relationship between two Stokes flows in the same region. [1] The Lorentz reciprocal theorem can be used to show that Stokes flow “transmits” unchanged the total force and torque from an inner closed surface to an outer enclosing surface. [1] The Lorentz reciprocal theorem can also be used to relate the swimming speed of a microorganism, such as cyanobacterium, to the surface velocity which is prescribed by deformations of the body shape via cilia or flagella. [1]

He arrived at the result that the theorem of determinacy cannot fail except in cases where large relative displacements can be accompanied by very small strains, as in thin rods and plates, and in cases where displacements differing but slightly from such as are possible in a rigid body can take place, as when a sphere is compressed within a circular ring of slightly smaller diameter. [4]

In the case of undamped SHM, the energy oscillates back and forth between kinetic and potential, going completely from one form of energy to the other as the system oscillates. [2] Fluid statics; fluid kinematics; integral and differential forms of the conservation laws for mass, momentum, and energy; Bernoulli equation; potential flows; dimensional analysis and similitude. [3] We have just considered the energy of SHM as a function of time. [2] Another interesting view of the simple harmonic oscillator is to consider the energy as a function of position. [2] When considering the energy stored in a spring, the equilibrium position, marked as x i 0.00 m, is the position at which the energy stored in the spring is equal to zero. [2] If the energy is below some maximum energy, the system oscillates near the equilibrium position between the two turning points. [2] In all cases where two modes of equilibrium are possible the criterion for determining the mode that will be adopted is given by the condition that the energy must be a minimum. [4] Indicate the minimum total energy the particle must have in each case. [6]

In each case, specify the regions, if any, in which the particle cannot be found for the given energy. [6] The lowest energy DTX conformers obtained by DFT computations are used to study the interaction mechanism between DTX and β-tubulin using molecular docking and MD simulations.

[8]

In this contribution, the methodology is extended with several new features such as the use of ab initio input from periodic systems, addition of cross terms and anharmonic contributions to the energy expression and modifications to the fitting scheme for a more robust and accurate force field. [7] It says that the energy of something moving is the mass of the object times the square of the velocity at which it is moving. [5] Fundamentals of engineering thermodynamics: energy, work, heat, properties of pure substances, first and second laws for closed systems and control volumes, gas mixtures. [3] An additional observation verifying internal consistency is that the experimental data, the classical solution thermodynamics, which is based on formation energies ( 8 ) as implemented in MINTEQ ( 35 ) and GEMS (Gibbs Energy Minimization Selektor) ( 36 ), and the TDDFT correctly predict the increasing fraction of ion pairs with rising pH that is observed in titration experiments by Gebauer et al. ( 2 ). [8] To ensure high-quality data, the stability of energy calibration, and the reproducibility of the data taken on different beamtimes, spectra of pure dilute CaCl 2 solutions were taken during each beamtime as a reference standard. [8]

Electron kinetics in low-temperature plasma, particle and energy fluxes, DC and RF driven discharges, instabilities of gas discharge plasmas. [3] Starting from what is now called the Principle of the Conservation of Energy he propounded a new method of obtaining these equations. [4] Ballistic-diffusive treatment, thermal radiation issues in nanomaterials, near-field energy transfer, molecular dynamics, and experimental methods. [3] Of much greater importance have been the development of the atomic theory in Chemistry and of statistical molecular theories in Physics, the growth of the doctrine of energy, the discovery of electric radiation. [4]

The statistical error at each energy of the averaged spectra can be expressed as the SD (about 1.5% in the XANES region), which is slightly larger than the statistical error from total counts N of about 0.3% (that is, ? N N 1/2 of total counts per energy point). [8] The horizontal position of the microjet was optimized by taking line scans as shown in fig. S1C. Because of inevitable mechanical imperfections of the monochromator, the beam moved horizontally by a few tens of micrometers when scanning the full energy range from 3900 to 4300 eV. In principle, this shift can be compensated by automated corrections to the monochromator mechanics. [8] This was achieved by a two-dimensional scan of the liquid jet position in the horizontal plane at a fixed photon energy of 4300 eV. This procedure takes advantage of the linear polarization of synchrotron radiation, which has no elastic scattering component in the polarization direction. [8] Figure 15.13 shows a graph of the energy versus position of a system undergoing SHM. [2]

Ab initio all-electron multiconfigurational computations have been carried out for the energy levels of the low-lying near-degenerate electronic states of Ce + and CeF with the Sapporo-QZP basis set, including the electron correlation, scalar relativistic, and spin-orbit coupling effects in a quantitative manner. [7] We apply this FCCS and CCS to simulate the energy of different electronic states of H 2 and, respectively. [7] DFT studies reveal a noteworthy enhancement in interaction energy for cage-shaped aromatic receptors, termed as “cage effect” for the noncovalent capture of noble gases, H 2 and N 2. [7] Application of the energy conservation equation to heat transfer in ducts and external boundary layers. [3] What is energy? Energy is the ability to do work or provide heat. [5] The amount of energy at the beginning of some sort of process will be equal to the amount of energy at the end of a process. [5] You can have an isolated system where neither energy nor matter either comes in or goes out of that context. [5] These are really theoretical, since there is always some energy loss from a system, no matter how isolated it may be. [5]

To study the energy of a simple harmonic oscillator, we need to consider all the forms of energy. [2] When considering many forms of oscillations, you will find the energy proportional to the amplitude squared. [2]

[3] If you hold a rock in the air or pull a swing back getting ready to swing, these are examples of energy stored up, as it were, ready to be released. [5]

At this point, the force on the block is zero, but momentum carries the block, and it continues in the negative direction toward x −A. As the block continues to move, the force on it acts in the positive direction and the magnitude of the velocity and kinetic energy decrease. [2] The velocity and kinetic energy of the block are zero at time t 0.00 s. [2] The kinetic energy is equal to zero because the velocity of the mass is zero. (b) As the mass moves toward x −A, the mass crosses the position x 0. [2] The velocity becomes zero when the kinetic energy is completely converted, and this cycle then repeats. [2]

The difference in kinetic energy is the amount of work done, where the kinetic energy at each point is 1/2 mv 2. [5] For the purposes of developing Schringer’s equation, we want to convert the E mv 2 form of the kinetic energy equation into a slightly different form, which relates it to momentum. [5]

The PMF was constructed by restraining the carbon of the CO 3 2? or HCO 3 ? species and the Ca 2+, where sampling windows over the distance ranging from 2.4 to 5.6 were equally spaced by 0.2 using harmonic umbrella potentials of the form V umbrella k ( r ? r 0 ) 2 with a force constant k of 4000 kJ mol ?1 nm ?2. [8] To create a theoretical solution model, we first construct potentials of mean force (PMFs) between Ca 2+ and either CO 3 2? or HCO 3 ? using first-principles molecular dynamics simulations with the interactions described by Kohn-Sham density functional theory (DFT) ( 11, 12 ). [8] We combine sophisticated experiments, simulations using advanced sampling techniques and complex interaction potentials, and electronic structure theory to overcome many of these limitations and thereby achieve a detailed molecular picture of ion pairing, cluster size distribution, and the initial stages of nucleation in supersaturated CaCO 3 solutions. [8] Molecular simulation of solution structure is equally challenging because of the difficulties of developing pairwise additive classical MM potentials that correctly describe ion-pairing interactions and simulating sufficient periods of time to adequately sample cluster configurations. [8] Simulations for the MM potential were performed using the interaction potential of Raiteri and co-workers ( 15, 16 ) under system size and simulation protocols identical with those used for the DFT calculation, but longer simulation times (1.5 ns per window) were accessible for the MM simulations. [8] Although initial applications of MM to the CaCO 3 system supported the conclusion that oligomeric species far larger than simple ions or ion pairs were abundant and stable relative to the latter ( 4 ), more recent work using the same classical potentials extending the simulations to longer times in dilute solutions concluded that the clusters decay into ions and ion pairs ( 9 ). [8] We also calculated the PMF for the MM potential using a larger simulation cell with linear dimensions of 28 to ensure that there were no significant finite size effects. [8] The coordination number at this separation is also consistent with a recent two-dimensional PMF using the MM interaction potential ( 18 ). [8] For both the MM and the DFT methods, PMFs are augmented with continuum electrostatics (CE) represented by the Coulomb potential modified by the experimentally determined dielectric constant for water to describe the long-range interactions ( Fig. 2B ). [8] We refer to the underlying potential for the reduced model for the MM as MM/CE. Because of the relatively small systems used to perform the DFT calculations, additional assumptions need to be made to construct the reduced interaction potential. [8]

Two different sets of simulations were carried out: On one hand, simulations without additional umbrella potentials were used to determine the size (numbers of cations and anions) and shape distributions of small aggregates. [8] Simulations with an additional umbrella potential acting on only one specific aggregate were used to probe the size and shape distributions of larger aggregates along the nucleation pathway. [8] We present molecular dynamics simulations of enzyme carbocation intermediates involved in the reaction, which provide information on potential reaction pathways to the observed products. [7]

Figure 15.12 shows a plot of the potential, kinetic, and total energies of the block and spring system as a function of time. [2] Applications to continuum mechanics, potential fields, and transport phenomena such as diffusion, linear and nonlinear waves, Burger’s equation and shocks. [3] PyEFP is a software that utilizes effective fragment potentials (EFP) approach to describe electrostatic interactions at the advanced level and enhances functionality of the original EFP method. [7] The case of a solid bounded by an infinite plane and otherwise unlimited is investigated on the lines laid down by Signor Valentino Cerruti, whose analysis is founded on Prof. Betti’s general method, and some of the most important particular cases are worked out synthetically by M. Boussinesq’s method of potentials. [4] In this paper we consider a random walk in random environment on a tree and focus on the boundary case for the underlying branching potential. [14]

For these two standards, a mixing ratio was applied to match the amount of bound species measured by Gebauer et al. ( 2 ), in which 30% is the amount of bound species in a supersaturated CaCO 3 solution at pH 9. ( C and D ) Same set of analysis for a solution at pH 9.75 (below the four-panel figure), where the speciation percentages are determined from the R 2 -weighted integral of the DFT-MM/CE potential in Fig. 2B. [8] The overall agreement with the (CaCO 3 ) 6 structures and populations with the work of Demichelis et al. ( 4 ) demonstrates that the potentials in Fig. 2B are general enough to reproduce subtle structural features. [8] Potential flows, boundary layers, low-Reynolds number flows. [3] Computational methods for MatSci will be discussed, dealing with atomic scale empirical or semiempirical potentials. [3] Molecular electrostatic potential at the fulvene ring in 1,3,6-triphenyl fulvene derivatives reflects substituent effects and shows correlation with reduction potential. [7]

Standard methods rely on a cutoff placed at the first minimum in the radial distribution function, which has to be constructed as an average over many configurations, assumes a fixed, spherical boundary, and cannot be defined consistently for any one kind of radial distribution function for a mixture. [7] For the shown example, the final position was chosen at the minimum intensity of the elastic scattering at around y ?9.25 mm, marked as a dotted line. [8] Daniel Bernoulli suggested to Euler that the differential equation of the elastica could be found by making the integral of the square of the curvature taken along the rod a minimum. [4] The Becke exchange ( 49 ) and correlation due to LYP (Lee-Yang-Parr) ( 50 ) was used in addition to the dispersion correction (D2) put forth by Grimme ( 51 ) with a 40 cutoff (that is, beyond the minimum image convention). [8] Convergence in law of the minimum of a branching random walk. [14]
